OTTAWA, Ontario--()--Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (YFI; TSX.V) (OTCQB: KPIFF), the industry leader in Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing technology for residential and commercial markets, today announced the financial and operating results for its year ended April 30, 2019.

Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Highlights

  • FY 2019 revenues of $420,650 which marked a sequential year-on-year growth of 479%
    • Q4 2019 revenues were impacted by a post-packaging yield issue on silicon, which resulted in a supply line disruption. We understand the issue and have defined improvements that are being implemented and tested.
  • Gross Margins of 25.6% for the year were consistent with our expectations. 45-50% Gross Margin is targeted on volume production.
  • Open orders are held for $839,873 of goods and services to be delivered.
  • Net loss totaled $2,806,200 for the year compared to $3,867,400 a year earlier due to operational efficiencies and cost controls.

“Fiscal Year 2019 marked a significant transition for the company as we began to establish revenue growth with early Enterprise adopters; while establishing the company as a leader in the next generation of Residential (home) Wi-Fi solutions,” said Andrew Skafel, President and CEO of Edgewater Wireless. “The $12.9 billion Consumer (home) market1 is evolving so quickly that new collaboration and licensing opportunities are accelerating faster than expected.”
